Things that make life easier if I keep them around:
- hard boiled eggs
- precooked bacon (cook it myself on the weekend and use all week)
- Optimist crackers
- nuts
- sunflower seeds (snacking)

There are some foods that I eat in moderation that I feel do have other benefits like onion and cottage cheese.

patdart -- thank you -- the biopsy is set for Oct 26, and it will be with local anesthesia and no results until the following week.

silvertiger -- I've been thinking that too -- to just boil up some eggs to have on hand to add to salads etc. I also want to boil some red potatoes to keep in the fridge to try the restricted starch idea. Maybe make some potato salad with those. My daughter's boyfriend made some seafood chowder, and gave us a batch in the freezer. I had some last night, and though it had potatoes in it, did not seem to spike my BG.

I would like to add peppers, celery and carrots, and jerusalem artichokes, and asparagus.

In fact, any vegetable you can think of and lots of fruits.

Also, I take supplements, especially Omega 3 (fish oil) and I eat lots of fish. You can google it, but our diets should have a ratio of 1:1 to 1:4 omega 3 to omega 6 (like in beef, pork, chicken, etc). Unfortunately, the American diet is more like 1:20 in favor of beef and pork, rather than fish. This is really the big thing with me. I also take other supplements. Having lived on the farm for many years, I know what condition our soils are in after intensive farming, and you can be eating a good diet and still your body can be starving for nutrition.

The big drug companies can see the writing on the wall where supplements are concerned. A law making it so that vitamin supplements will be classified as "drugs" thus subject to mandatory expensive studies and takeover by the big drug companies is in Congress. You can google this. The following website tells more about this:

Take Action, Protect Dietary Supplements

Me too!!! I got so enthralled with it I think I read the entire thread!! And it was LONG. I have a LOT of spices. All kinds. I have thought of so many flavor varieties that I think would be tasty in this. And I am thinking of making a batch with chopped nuts. Someone put out a nut cracker a couple of years ago that I just loved. Oh and I bought some cream cheese today to spread on top

I read the whole thing too, yes long, but I enjoyed it in a strange way. LOL, I got kinda tickled how something so simple as a cracker can get so much excitement built up in the D community! I do realize when you go without something for so long and can find a suitable substitute it IS something to get excited about.
I went to the reg. grocery store today and picked up a few things to add to my staple of pantry items. Included butternut squash, brussel sprouts, sugar free 0 carb salad dressing and 100% cocoa. Did pick up some coconut oil and fried some zucchinni rolled in flax & salt for lunch and it was pretty close to the recipe I use to make.
I know I can't expect to figure it all out over 2 weeks, but I sure can explore, read, and experiment!

Ranita, it sounds like you are off to a good start.
I never cared for the winter squashes. But I am going to see if can find spaghetti squash and try that out.
